Harakeke Hub Hosts & Community 'Sign-posters'

Harakeke Hubs are a welcome place to foster meaningful connections. Those who come along may be looking to gain some social interaction and combat loneliness, have some friendly conversation, be supported to access and use the Marlborough CAB directory to find local services, groups, and organisations......or more!

Each Hub will be hosted by at least one trained, community-minded volunteer. The Hubs will take place in venues such as libraries, cafes, community rooms, youth centres, etc.

Alternatively, act as a Community Sign-poster. We need people out in the community to direct people to the Hubs, and hand out information about the Hubs and the Marlborough CAB Directory. Whether you're at the grocery store, at work, out for a walk, or with family & friends...have some cards on you and help spread the word!

FULL TRAINING is provided for these roles.
